Learning Resources

New education resources for use at the National Sports Museum are being launched soon, and will be placed on this page of the website.

Resources are all linked to the Australian Curriculum and include pre-, during, and post- visit activities.

These have been created to provide teachers with easy ways to use the museum as a self-guided teaching resource. A minimum of one hour in the museum for groups working on any of these programs is recommended.

MATHS
Suitable for primary and secondary students, there are a wide range of activities. 

Demonstrating that sport and the NSM offer maths teachers many options, activities include: Interpreting data sets, calculating means and medians, estimating angles or solving problems using rates and ratios, describing probabilities using fractions, decimals and percentages, and more. 

HISTORY
Focusing on years 5-6 and 9-10, the new history program covers eight subjects which are explored through the hidden stories of the collection: The 1868 Indigenous Cricket team, Blind Cricket, The history of school based Australian Football, Women Cricketers, Sport and Immigration, Radio and Television Commentary, Australian Sport during WWI, and The Ancient Olympics.

HEALTH and PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Discovering sporting legends, sporting values and the role sport plays in Australia as a nation; as well as the importance of good nutrition and technological advances in sport, these programs are aimed at years 5-6 and 9-10.

DESIGN and TECHNOLOGY
The museum offers a great opportunity for students of design.

Focused on what designers need to think about, the programs guide students through various aspects of design such as knowing fibre and fabrics and what is most suitable for different sports, as well as designing specific symbolic items such as an Olympic torch.

Programs are targeted at years 5-6 through to 10.
